I finally found a replacement 460 for my '78 F250. Thing is, it came out of a Ford Tractor. How do I find out what year the engine was manufactured and what kind of modifications do i need to make to get it in my truck?
This is the casting on the block and I can't make heads or tails of it. I think it may be an early 80's model. I'm rebuilding this one, then swapping the 460 out of my '78 for this one. Then maybe a swap of the two again
I poked around and this may or may not be right but TE-AB seems pretty clear so that's what I used to narrow things down. I found this for big block fords, D9TE-AB – 1979-1984, 429/460 Big-Block Ford, 2-bolt mains, Truck.
It looks like there were several different options for the 460 in 78. Probably need to start with the casting number there and see which version it is.
